Parrot Mambo overview

  • 1Description

Part of Parrot's Minidrone line, the Mambo quadcopter features two included accessories to help you take your fun and adventure to the next level. The Cannon accessory features a 6-ball magazine and can fire a ball every 1.5 seconds. The Grabber allows you to pick up and move objects weighing up to 0.15 ounces. With an integrated camera, you can also snap photos from the air. The Mambo features Bluetooth-based control and requires a separately available smartphone with Bluetooth 4.0 LE or later to pilot the drone and operate the accessories. Expect flying times of 8 to 9 minutes, depending on payload and conditions.

FreeFlight Mini App
No special controller required – pilot the Mambo with a Bluetooth 4.0 LE-enabled smartphone or mobile device. The app is available on both Google Play and Apple's App Store
Works with Flypad Controller
For a more traditional flying experience, you can opt for the separately available Flypad Controller. It features an extended range of up to 200' and includes a clamp for mounting your smartphone. The smartphone can be used to display telemetry data and access drone settings
Integrated Camera
The Mambo features a 300,000-pixel-resolution flight camera allowing you to snap photos of your flights
Cannon Accessory
Hone your target practice skills with the included Cannon accessory. Mounting on top of the drone, this ball launcher features a 6-shot capacity and can fire at a rate of up to one shot per 1.5 seconds. The range extends up to 6.5' in a straight line. The balls produce a soft impact
Grabber Accessory
These pincers allow you to pick up and move objects weighing up to 0.15 ounces. Opening and closing intervals can be set with a timer, and the Grabber will automatically open if a crash is detected
Battery Life
The included 550mAh battery lasts an estimated 8 minutes with an accessory and 9 minutes with the drone alone. It takes approximately 30 minutes to charge using a 2.5A USB power source (available separately)

    Parrot Mambo reviews

    Minidrone Mambo with Cannon and Grabber Accessories is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun for not too much money. Highly recommend. This thing is a blast to fly around the house. Not so much outside if winds are more than 5mph. However, I didn't buy it as an outside quad, so it meets all of my expectations. Battery life is good for a small craft. The design is good and it's tough. I've crashed into walls, the mantle, the Christmas tree, all without breaking anything, so far. The BB cannon is fun, too. The grabber claw doesn't do much for me. It works, but there isn't much power and the turbulence makes it difficult to grab anything. But it's still fun to play with. Overall, a solid 9 out of 10. The only thing that would bump it to 10/10 is a better camera and more picture features. Not a big deal for a fun little toy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I guess I would buy this product again I like the looks of this quadcopter. I would prefer that the software and blue tooth control be better. I have had problems with the quadcopter recognizing, and working the cannon. I prefer using the fly pad to control the drone. I have had some problems controlling it . Sometimes the Mambo goes off on its own. I hope Parrot will keep this quadcopter, but, fix the cannon, and flight controls problems with it.
